We arrived for lunch on Saturday. There was a dimsum option, but we decided to order off the menu as we had been before and had favorites. We started with cucumber salad and scallion pancakes (delicious!!) and followed with lemon chicken and green beans and tried some of our friend's general tso's chicken. We didn't order off the traditional side... More

We came back because we liked the food but this time as soon as we sat down before we were able to order, someone started yelling at us trying to get the little plates. We said no thank you but she kept insisting we take some so we thought it was something they did on Sundays. Then they charged us... More

This place used to be outstanding but the neighborhood has deteriorated along with the food. There are so many options on the menu but nothing we had at dinner was better than average. The spring rolls were very doughy with few vegetables. The beef dishes were tough and heavy on the sauce. Chicken fried rice was actually the best dish... More

We come to this place when we are in Indianapolis to visit family, for its dim sum on weekends. We have been doing this for three years. I am not sure what is going on but the food quality has been steadily going down and this last time was simply horrible. We went there this past Saturday after Christmas at... More

My wife and I have been many times and always had a good experience. We were so looking forward to our "Jewish Christmas" Chinese dinner. We brought other friends who had never been. Basically, the food we received was very good, however half of our party never received their order. We keep asking our waitresses where our food was and... More

Sorry to see these bad reviews here---we had a great meal. The Dim Sum was delicious..we tried several different dishes--all (except one) were as good as Chicago Dim Sum. The staff was always nearby and attentive. I brought in a menu from a Dim Sum restaurant in Chicago that we loved and they quickly shows us their menu and the... More

Service the worst have to hunt down server each time needed. Food quality below average. Ever been to Chinese Restruant that does not have crispy noodles for soup? Facility made you feel like a shower after leaving. I hope board of health keeps close watch here. Don't go tried 3 times now and each time colossal disappointment .

I have enjoyed eating here for years but in the last few months the service and food quality has declined drastically. The gentleman that is the new host is uninterested and unfriendly. The take out I received today was cold and bland even though I waited fifteen minutes for it there in the restaurant. I was there during lunch and... More
